I have a great pain management physician in Louisville, Ky. I am not sure how far that is from you, but you might want to check them out. It is called Metro Pain Associates.
Do you have copies of your medical records that document the medications you were taking?

Hello again Migraine friends,
There is one thing i forgot to mention that may help if yu can find the right SHRINK sorry no anger just attention getter.
I see a shrink as well, he has RX: Valium for me. Now here me out dont start w/the hate mail yet.
Whatever the pain anyone of us here is in lets all remember how r body works. If yu dont know why u get migraines i suggest try & find out.
My findings were 1. teeth grinding esp at night 2.anxiety 3. lack of sleep.4.poss, Fibromyalgia
Valium is a muscle relaxant so even though you all may think it wont work on migraines, think about whats causing them.
Since its mainly sore jaw muscles, ridgity of muscles due to anxiety & poor quality of sleep which ruins all your body parts & if i due have Fibro, thats a biggie there.
So why not try & talk to not ask for a muscle relaxant & it doesnt have to be Valium, very small doeses are required .5 millgrms thats is so much less than 4-6T#3/day.
Remember just talk about it at first, really let your doc, understand how much your pain is effecting your everyday life & yu very much would like to be there for this & that ect.
It may go much better than hey doc, im in pain what r u going to give me for it.
Just an example of myself before i learned to work w/not against my docs, & pharmasists dont forget the pharmacists they can & im sure some of you & i have been through.
